AEDM day 20: Tuscan rooftops

Tonight I had my second painting class (Experimental Acrylic Painting Techniques), and the theme was Corrugated Cardboard. The texture of the cardboard immediately brings to mind rooftops in Italy for me, so I looked back through my photos to find some inspiration to bring with me to class. I used a couple different sizes of corrugated cardboard, and spent so long cutting the pieces that I didn’t have enough time to paint. Still, I’m pretty happy with the result. Maybe I’ll work on it more later.

One strange thing from class tonight. I brought along an xacto knife to use to cut the cardboard. The teacher was fascinated, having never seen one before. And here I was thinking that xacto knives were pretty universal artists’ tools. Guess not. I should have asked her what she would use to cut mat board and stuff like that.

    I love the way this forms into an abstract painting as well as a referential one. The colors are great!

    What perfect subject matter for the cardboard! Love the composition. And you are so right in thinking it was odd your instructor never saw an exacto knife!
